I was trained as a physicist at ETH Zurich before joining INI for a PhD. I have always been interested in the interdisciplinary field of neural computation, where biology, physics, mathematics, engineering, and computer science meet.

I am most interested in learning and self-organization in spiking neural networks. During my PhD, I work on models of Bayesian computation in recurrent neural assemblies and use neuromorphic VLSI devices to emulate large, spiking neural networks.
